Pipe cleaners are perfect for stringing activites because they are stiff and easy to handle. Set out an assortment of pipe cleaners knotted at one end and the oposite sharp end bent down. Let the children string buttons, large wooden beads, thread spools, cereal pieces or other materials with holes in them.
This project should be supervised by an adult as small pieces could pose a choking hazard.
